The valley is easily accessible through the main road, leading from Belá-Dulice. The access from the village Turčianske Jaseno is a bit demanding. Close to the lifts there is a spacious parking lot for cars and buses. The northern slopes in Kašová are treated, visited by beginners as well as advanced skiers. The main advantage of this ski center is the system of snow making (several Latemar snow guns). There are various types of ski lifts in the center (3 ski lifts - up to 200 m/656 ft, 3 ski lifts - over 200 m/656 ft), which - altogether (excluding the chairlift) - transport 2,600 skiers per hour. Since the chairlift was launched in 1998, the transport capacity has been increased up to 5000 people per hour.
